Bio:
I am passionate about saving seeds, Africa, climate justice, exceptional people of all ages, the power of well-thought out words, and the moment when talk becomes action. Time spent as a writer, program developer for Glasswaters Foundation, masters student in Intercultural & International communication, webbie, community organizer, and new media educator. I've spent the past 10 years helping African community based organizations leapfrog over the digital divide, while learning from them how to harness 'live' social networks ... and how to trade singing out loud for Prozac.

In the mountains of Lesotho, the first generation to enjoy free primary education stand poised to lift their country out of poverty. Yet — most rural households do not have access to electricity, so children study by candlelight or kerosene lamps. From the time the sun rises until it sets over the mountains every night, students are busy fetching firewood, collecting water, tending their fields, and — if they are very determined — attending high school. With even one solar light, families can enlighten their nights.
